#ThankYou, Ysleta Independent School District for hosting our "#NewSchoolCounselorChildrensBereavementTraining" in January!

It is important for us to share #griefeducation and tools for helping area kids who have experienced the #lossofalovedone. Together, we can help kids thrive. Here are some of the comments we received:

"Great Presentation! Great tool-box ideas. Thank you."

"It is always hard to talk to a person who has lost someone and we hardly ever know what to say, finding the words that would do justice to the #empathy or #support for them. This presentation gave me some ideas on some do's and don'ts."

"Thank you for your presentation. This is my first month as a #counselor. I feel that the information you shared has helped my self-esteem in being able to help my students."

"Great presentation! The presenter is very knowledgeable."

How worried should we be about children in 2021? Considerably, if some of the evidence is to be believed. Catch this two-part exploration of how children are faring during the pandemic from the point of view of two Hogg Foundation grantees: Children's Grief Center of El Paso and First3Years.
In this episode of our Into the Fold podcast, we explore the connection between caregiver death and children’s mental health with Laura Olague, director of Children's Grief Center of El Paso.

#ChildrensGriefAwarenessDay! Today is Children's Grief Awareness Day and in recognition of some of our little heroes here in El Paso, we would like to share these tips and best practices when helping a child in grief. We thank the National Alliance for Grieving Children and their 'Be an Everyday Hero' campaign as well as the New York Life Foundation for the supplies for the hero-transformation!

El equipo de #EPElectric agradece la valiosa ayuda que Children’s Grief Center of El Paso proporciona a aquellas personas que han perdido a un ser querido.

Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas is profoundly saddened by the inexplicable violence that has impacted both El Paso and Dayton this past weekend. The lives of children whose loved ones were killed or injured have changed overnight. The grief, anxiety and trauma is more than any child or teen should have to bear. We offer prayers to all those affected and will be providing bilingual child grief workbooks and art therapy supplies to our sister center, Children's Grief Center of El Paso. Thank you for supporting the mission of helping children’s hearts heal. Staff and Board of Children’s Bereavement Center.
